2023 MLB MVP Picks and Predictions
It’s hard to argue a two-horse race between Shohei Ohtani and Aaron Judge to start the season. Between the two, Judge has more value and is less prone to injury based on Ohtani’s workload.
The best AL bet on the board is actually four-digits with Yordan Alvarez. Following Jose Altuve’s injury during the WBC, Alavarez will need to carry this offense early in the season - and can.
- Yordan Alvarez +1100 - Mar. 20, 2023
- Shohei Ohtani +200 - Mar. 20, 2023
MLB MVP Winner History
As is the case with most futures markets, the MLB MVP Market loses its value as the season prolongs. Closing MVP odds are typically expensive minus-value, but getting a ticket in this market as the season starts allows for good value shopping and possible hedge opportunities in the long MLB season.
Below are past winners of the MVP Award for both the NL and AL. It’s very rare a pitcher wins this award, although not impossible which has been proven by the future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander in 2011. Mike Trout has won three times, as Alex Rodriguez in 2007 was the last player to win this award three times.
